Thankful Tablescape

Hello Blogland!  I couldn't resist sharing a Thankful tablescape with you because I've got so much to be thankful for, much of which never comes across on this blog.  Some of you have asked again where I've been.  Well, the long and short of it is, I've been working! My new job now in retail allows me to work during the week and have my weekends and Mondays off.  What a blessing that is, and I love it!

I am not blogging as much these days because it's really just not that much of a priority to me. Quite simply, I've decided to leave the everyday blogging to all you wonderful and inspirational professional bloggers.  I do hope that there's still room out here for those like me who want to pop in on occasion and share.  I am still looking at your blogs and gaining beautiful inspiration and ideas as I am sure you can see from much of what I share as well.  So....without further ado, here's a Thanksgiving tablescape that I hope you will enjoy!

Love my turkey basket.  It was from Ah, at home.  Too bad they are no longer in business.

I decided to give this years setting a mixture of old and new.

The "Be Thankful" bags were from Michaels last year. 

I just couldn't resist using these linen placemats that I purchased from a church/yard sale a few years back.  I just love the fall colors of the crewelwork on them.

My fabulous Lenox dinner plate is from my Butlers Pantry collection.

And the salad plates were from TJ Maxx and Marshalls.

Now, isn't this the cutest little thing?  I found these corn holder plates at a local thrift store.  I love that they are just the perfect color match to my Butlers Pantry dishes as well.

Here' s some new! New style and new linens.  I just had to make these chevron napkins this year to be a little trendy ya know!
I like the way the chevron coordinated with my runner I purchased a few years ago from Joanne fabrics.

I used my grandmothers crystal with the gold etchings for the wine and these pretty gold goblets purchased from a resale store were the perfect choice for tea.

Gobble, gobble shakers were from Ross.

From this view, I think either my brown or woven place mats may have been a better choice but then I wouldn't have gotten to use the linen ones...and well, I like those...alot!!! LOL!

These candlesticks were the perfect choice of color.  I love how well they coordinated with my runner.

And the pine cone candles have always reminded me of fall.

Here's a little trick I learned from all of you bloggers.  Wrap some jute twine around almost anything and it will add just that extra touch of cuteness!

I've also done a little rearranging in the dining room too.  I moved my china hutch off the side wall and placed it on the back wall of the dining room where the marble table and mirror used to be.  I had another side table in here where this black sideboard is now and the black side board was where the marble table is now.  Basically, I took out one of the extra side tables because it was feeling just a little too crowded to me. Even though we only use this room a few times a year, I still like it to feel as spacious as possible.  I still revamping this room little by little.  Hoping to find a new rug this year.  Now that's quite a challenge.  Would love any suggestions on that!

Well, there's my Thankful table y'all!  I hope you enjoyed it.

I can hardly wait to get things set up for Christmas this year.  I am literally chomping at the bit.  I may even break tradition and do it this weekend.  Well, maybe.  
We shall see!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I wish each of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
